In America we have the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (N.A.A.C.P) and then we have the United Negro College Fund (U.N.C.F). As a C-SPAN junkie I was watching Mr. Robert Groves, the Director of the Census Bureau, on the morning of March 25, 2010 taking phone calls from an American Woman of African decent. This woman made it known to everybody that was listening how she felt about the word "Negro" being on the census application. Well to this woman and the rest of the word; it is written "swallow a camel and choke on a gnat." (Matthew chapter 23 verse 24) Let me stop you and everybody else from showing your ignorance when it comes to words that are spoken in different languages. The word "Negro" means "Black" in Spanish. For those who have the word "Negro" on your birth certificate this implies that your parents wrote the word black in Spanish on your birth certificate; not the doctors or nurses who worked in the hospital where you were born. The fact that the word "Negro" is even a issue for the American Black Citizens today is because the captains of the ships that the slaves came over on were of Spanish decent.
Today the same privilege are given to every parent who fills out their child birth certificated. Parents write in the ethnicity of their own child. So since the black race is just as complex as the white, yellow, red, and brown race of human-being; the census bureau is only trying to satisfy the American Black race. It is a well known fact that the history of the American Black citizens is to change ethnicity every ten years. Why? Because of the creative gifts within the Black American Citizens; which cannot be contained. So please stop showing the world that you only recognize the word black in English and that the Spanish word for black offend you; which is my point for writing this short article.
